    Default Chasing 1800c tank, fenders and side covers

    Hi guys, anyone sitting on any of the above you might want to get rid of. I want to have a go at custom airbrushing a matched set for the X. I thought rather than do mine I'd have a go at a spare set.

    Thanks Craig, the sidecovers arrived safely. Just got to source the fenders and tank, I will try a few of the wreckers around town and see what comes up.
    I'm only just starting out but here's a few of the things I have been doing.

    Once again thanks

    Thanks Simon, I've got a long way to go before I'll be anywhere near as good as some of the guys out there, but I think I'm ready to have a go at some tins.
    Like most things it's all about knowing the tricks and for that I did a short course.
    It all started because I wanted to get the headlight painted to match the pattern on the X and either no one would take it on or I had to take out an 2nd mortgage, so I thought stuff it I'll do it myself.
    The course cost less than the cost of painting and cutting stickers for the light.

    I'm good thanks Sheepie. Kids sports seems to take most of my time over winter so I haven't been getting out as much as I'd like.

    Yeah, must be a hassle hey Although depending on where you work that road can be a real pain in peak hour.
    Often thought I would like to move out around Canungra way, but I don't know where I would ride to

    Default Sorry Bunji

    I do hope you realise I will need those side covers back after you have painted them?.........Cant have your great work in danger.........so I am prepared to protect them by attaching them to the side of my bike.......no thanks necessary.

    Craig

    PS I can do the same with a tank!

    Hi Ausvtx
    still having problems finding parts locally, and it has been difficult getting people in the US to post 2nd hand bits to OZ, have moved onto a couple of other projects in the mean time. I'm still very keen to paint up a set. Did get a bit silly and painted up a VTX radiator grill. I will post a pic later when I get it off the phone.
